The best way to profit from Bitcorn:

Buy the domain "crypto.com" in 1993.

During that quarter century the "dotcom" era came and went, but for whatever reason, I held on to the domain as basically a personal home, a kind of Internet version of the little house increasingly enveloped by skyscrapers in Pixar's Up. (You kids can get off my lawn now, please.) [...]

Last month, I reached an agreement to sell the domain. I have no idea what the new owner plans to use it for beyond what I read in the trade press, and I have no financial stake in their business. The details will have to stay confidential, but I will say that I'm satisfied with the outcome and that it involved neither tulips nor international postal reply coupons.

    In about 2000 I remmber talking to a lawyer who was involved in the sale of a .com domain for some stupid amount of money. I just had a look and 'As of 22nd March, 2013 [...] no longer offers new savings products.' So I guess thar's at least 12 years more than this will last.

    This makes me irrationally angry. Think of the link rot! Also, why would a noted crypto advocate not use HTTPS for their website‽

    I imagine he can't hear me over the sound of all that money.
